Hi, Hello!

I am a PhD Candidate in Political Science at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL). I am interested in democratization/authoritarianism, sub-national politics, political parties, and oligarchy in Southeast Asia, particularly in Indonesia, the Philippines, and Thailand. I'm currently working on my dissertation research about the dynamics of family network in politics (i.e. dynastic politics) at the sub-national level in Indonesia.

I received my BA in Political Science from Parahyangan Catholic University (Bandung, Indonesia). I obtained my first master's degree in Corporate Communications from the London School of Public Relations (Jakarta, Indonesia), M.Sc. in Asian Studies from S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University (Singapore), and MA in Political Science from Northwestern University.

If you're interested in the issue of dynastic politics, subnational politics, Indonesia, Southeast Asia, democratization, or political communications, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely yours,

Yoes C. Kenawas
